america? from the beginning of the obama care debate i've been telling you it's not the cost of the health insurance that will be the main problem. yes, the cost is going to go higher for working americans, no question, but it is access to doctors that will vex americans in the future. in the next five weeks millions of americans will be added to the medicaid rolls. next year the congressional budget office predicts that 9 million more people will be receiving medicaid. just 69 percent of american doctors accept medicaid now. that number may go lower as government payments drop. if millions are added to the medicaid rolls and two-thirds accept those patients, the lines are going to be all over the place. joining us from oklahoma city, dr. keith smith who has a surgery practice and dr. brooks. dr. brooks, you don't take medicaid health insurance at all, correct? >> that's correct, bill. >> why? >> i don't think i can do a thorough job. i don't believe in running people through my practice. i don't believe in volume practice and the new laws really would necessitate my pushing people through

just learning that things are going up. promoting low premiums for scores of americans, but there is a catch, and it's a big one. it comes at a cost of much higher deductibles. this is according to the kaiser family foundation. still, the obama administration argues that the high upfront costs do not factor in the tax subsidies for individuals making less than around $29,000 in a family of three making less than $49,000. the trouble is status only 30% qualify for subsidies and not a lot of them and this is the latest surprise in this not exactly unscripted health care law. millions of americans have already discovered that they can't keep their doctor, they can keep the hospital either. and millions more that say they can't keep their health care plan. my next guest says the problems will keep coming as more americans want to help your website into a little bit of discovery and what they want they can have and they have to have. and it might come in the form of this and dick cheney is talking about the medical device tax. which a 2.3% surcharge on devices from the baby lay readers to
